by Sally Alves
Own a B&B in the old west town of Tombstone, Arizona? Sally and Jerry Alves relished the idea when they purchased a rambling, vacant adobe hacienda badly needing renovation. After six months of hard work their poor, neglected house was turned into a lovely, inviting B&B.
Sally shares a plethora of humorous, heartwarming, sad and shocking stories about guests during her seven years of business. These unusual tales include crazy weddings, romantic proposals, strange honeymoons, runaway brides, iffy affairs, dangerous intrigue, ghost stories and more. She also dishes on the exciting film stars who stayed at her B&B during Tombstones film festivals.
This is a must read and a learning experience for those wanting to know the inside scoop of what really can happen inside the B&B business.About the Author
